Since the oldest child started college this semester (could you please choose some classes that don't require 13 books?) we've had to analyze our spending habits.
Eating out - less frequent
New carpeting - delayed
Backyard landscaping - not this season
Flat screen TV - dream on baby
But nothing else compares to the major sacrifice of:
Cleaning service - fired
What this means, of course, is that I spent the morning cleaning the bathtub. And I feel I need to share this experience with you.
No matter what product I use, or how much elbow grease I employ, I still see dirt on those non-skid strips on the bottom of the tub.
While I very much appreciate the bathtub industry for caring so much about my welfare (because if I fell in the shower I'd break my right hip and crush my wrist and everyone in my life would suffer right along with me, I promise) I do not enjoy sharing my bath with millions of dead skin cells embedded in the sandpapery surface on the bottom of the tub.
Why is it that professional house cleaners can handle this challenge and I cannot? It is a conspiracy?
